Window shades are one of the most versatile and multi-functional products to be found, whether in the commercial or residential markets. They combine art and beauty with scientific performance for a unique solution to many different needs.

One of the fastest growing trends is our ability to print custom colors, patterns, and graphics on shade cloth. This has opened up even more possibilities for both the art and the utility of shades.

Happy little trees.
Not all windows look out over a pleasant, natural scene. With custom printed graphic shades, that’s no longer a problem! Turn interior windows that look out over bleak courtyards or offices where the only view is another building into calming art. Use natural patterns or scenes from nature—perhaps some trees. After all, as the American painter Bob Ross said, “There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.”

Get a little crazy.
Want a custom shade color or pattern to match your interior design? Bring us the Pantone, Sherwin Williams, or Benjamin Moore color number and we will match it. Draper technicians can also take color samples and use them to come up with the perfect custom color shade to fit right in.

Unlimited power.
Exterior advertising can be a powerful tool, but it can also be costly. Graphic shades can help you make use of a “free” commodity: your windows. Whether using a single window or spreading your message across a bank of them, graphic shades can be printed with your eye-catching artwork and snappy message to get attention.

Success breeds success.
Inspire your employees and customers to greater success with subtle and well-designed messages inside your building. Use graphic shades to display inspirational sayings or artwork, while also reducing glare and solar heat gain. As long as quotes or artwork are in the public domain, or you own the rights to display them, the sky’s the limit!

Why Draper?
Our CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) inks offer brilliant, vibrant color reproduction throughout a wide color gamut. However, they do more than paint a pretty picture.

We use water-based latex inks that are UL ECOLOGO certified, and GREENGUARD GOLD certified with no off-gassing. They also contain UV inhibitors to help protect against fading.

Our knowledgeable in-house designers and high-tech digital printers ensure the highest quality control. A backlit inspection table allows us to review prints of any size for quality and accuracy. We use daylight-balanced lighting in our facility and utilize a dedicated light booth for critical review.

Whether you’re thinking about window signage, trade show displays, “closed” signage, wayfinding, archival museum signage, custom shades that match your home décor, or a myriad of other uses, custom printed graphic window shades from Draper provide the solution.
